The free medical camp, scheduled to take place on Saturday at IMDH, will offer a wide range of services to attendees.

They have also pledged their support by providing essential medicines to the patients.
The press conference also shed light on the services provided by NE Health Services and Apollo Hospitals Guwahati.
“NE Health Services Pvt. Ltd. is the Northeast’s first one-stop solution for patients, whereby you can avail end-to-end services under our umbrella from your arrival to departure,” said Shyamanga Kashyap, one of the directors of the organization.
